    There was an article at Wired called the mathematics of Ebola. Basically if the darn thing contaminates more than 1 people on average, it'll spread quickly.

    Ebola is spreading at an average of 2. That means by january 2015 there may be over 1 million infections. Within 6 months it could reach all humankind.

    Obviously that's not gonna happen cuz I'm immune to this shit. Now excuse me I need to find some whiskey.

    A vaccine is in the works and it all looks like a big conspiracy to me.

    give it to me or it does not spread through my PC I am already quarantined working around the clock. :D

    I have more faith in the US CDC than I do in the [African country][disorganized attempt-at-control agency].

    That said... it might be a good time to take that vacation to the log cabin in the woods - for about, say, 2 years.

    This shit doesn't scare me anymore, i actually live in west Africa where we have taken the highest hit of the virus, But trust me when i say the stigma that comes with contacting the virus kills faster than the virus itself.. Hopefully a cure is on its way soon.. Moreover my immune system is way too advanced for Ebola..Lolz

    Remember when people were apprehensive about contracting Swine Flu in 2010?
    Speaking of crazy, do you remember when everyone was scared of getting Mad Cow Disease?
    What about the classic Bird Flu "epidemic"?
    Do you know what people are going to say next in the future? "Remember when people were panicking about Ebola"? :D

    whenever a species becomes too prevalent something always trims the excess.

    It's super unlikely that an epidemic will occur in any developed country with a high quality health care system.

    But for nations in West Africa like Liberia and Sierra Leone it's devastating and will probably only get worse. That's where the 1,000,000 infections will be.

    Lol I had the swine flu, it was just like the common cold but lasted a bit longer, but the only thing about ebola is it was at a 90% mortality rate, currently it's at %60, hopefully this vaccine works out. personally I want a cool rage virus like in 28 days later or world war z, being human or zombie, it would still be fun xD hahaha

    I can't wait until scientists name a disease "sexiness", everyone in the world will happily get infected.

    Yep, people have a tendency to panic for nothing.

    I was living in Hong Kong when SARS hit and for weeks I (and every other expat) was getting panicked calls from friends and family around the world. They were watching the news and assuming the worst.

    In HK, we (expats) were just going about our lives as normal, not giving anything a second thought.

    The only impact was on business trips - at one point anyone with a slight cold or sniffle was in danger of not being allowed to fly because of panicked entry restrictions in the destination countries.

    I did use the hysteria amongst the locals to my advantage though - every time I took public transport I used to fake a big sneeze and sniff, which resulted in having several seats to myself :)
